White cream with lemon with lemon curd

A simple yet effective dessert: white cream with lemon, with lemon curd. The white cream, or Blancmange, is a recipe from my childhood: I was mom when I was in the mood for sweet. Does not contain eggs, so it is definitely lighter than custard, and you can spice up in different ways: I prefer lemon zest and a little vanilla extract. Lemon curd is a perfect match, But if you don't feel like doing it or buy it, sounds great even a tablespoon of your favorite jam or fresh strawberries, Maybe toss with a little sugar and lemon.

Ingredients for 4 servings: 

  • 500 milliliters of fresh whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons of flour (30 grams)
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar (80 grams)
  • zest of one lemon (I, with the knife, get a thin ribbon)
  • vanilla extract as required
  • 4 tbsp lemon curd

Mix in a saucepan the sugar with the flour. Merge to thread little milk stirring vigorously so that no lumps: When you will be formed a thick batter and smooth, Add the remaining milk, vanilla, lemon zest. Put the saucepan on the stove.

Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until the cream comes to a boil and begins to thicken. Pour into cups and let it cool at room temperature, then store it in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Serve the cream with a dollop of lemon curd (to spread it slightly heat it in a water bath mirror; be careful because once poured over cream no longer put in the refrigerator because the lemon curd tends to harden with cold).

This version looks very light too, cold we layer a cake with this?

Thanks Ash. In my opinion, in a layer of cake lemon curd could be a little heavy. Anyway, in a few days we will publish the lemon curd (home made) recipe, combined with a brioche…
